Obama and China Agree: Fascist Dictators Should Control Internet Or At Least By Their Proxy, The U.N.

Obama administration joins critics of U.S. nonprofit group that oversees Internet
The California nonprofit organization that operates the Internet's levers has always been a target for such global heavies
as Russia and China that prefer the United Nations to be in charge of the Web. But these days, the Internet Corporation for
Assigned Names and Numbers is fending off attacks from a seemingly unlikely source: the Obama administration.
Concerned about the growing movement to cede oversight to the U.N., the U.S. government, which helped create ICANN in 1998,
has been reprimanding the nonprofit group to give foreign nations more say over the Web's operations.
The battle has come at a sensitive time for ICANN,
<http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/02/06/AR201...> which this month is meeting with
foreign governments as it pulls off the biggest expansion ever of Web suffixes - including .gay, .muslim and .nazi. Also
this fall, the nonprofit organization is seeking to hold on to its federal contract to oversee the Web's master database of
addresses - a sweeping power that governments fear could be used to shut down foreign domains that the United States finds
"There's a deeper question of how the world is reacting to a small company - even a nonprofit - completely in charge of a
key part of the Internet. Is that acceptable? There's no 100 percent comfortable solution here," said Steve Crocker,
ICANN's vice chairman, who lives in Bethesda and is the chief executive of Shinkuro, a technology company.

With some Middle East countries shutting down the Internet within their borders to curb uprisings, the question of who runs
the Web is increasingly figuring into global foreign policy debates. Some fear that governments such as those of Libya or
Iran could more easily crush rebellions if they gained more control over the Internet's inner workings.

Authorities Search and Copy U.S. Journalist <http://redactednews.blogspot.com/2011/02/authorities-search-and-copy-...>
's Notes, Computer and Cameras After Returning from Haiti
Brandon Jourdon reporting on G20 in Queenspark
Dont4GetHaiti.org <http://dontforgethaiti.blogspot.com/2011/02/authorities-search-and-co...> | Independent
journalist Brandon Jourdan recently returned from Haiti after being on assignment documenting the rebuilding of schools in
the earthquake-devastated country. However, when he returned to the United States, he was immediately detained after
deboarding the plane by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. He was questioned about his travels and had all of
his documents, computer, phone and camera flash drives searched and copied. This is the seventh time Jourdan says he has
been subjected to lengthy searches in five years, and has been told by officials that he is "on a list." Jourdan joins us
in our studio. Catherine Crump, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, says that Jourdan is not the only
one facing such treatment by the Obama administration. Crump says many journalists and lawyers who often work abroad have
also experienced similar interrogations-and the ACLU believes the First and Fourth Amendments must be honored within U.S.
airports. [includes rush transcript]
